“Memory was fluid, wasn’t it? You remember things the way you want to, to preserve your ego, to hide your shame.”

Francine, “Francie” Bennett, up and coming Associate at Ward & Bailee, isn’t giving it “her all”. Since her promotion to Assitant Managing Partner, she’s felt more like a babysitter than a mentor to the new recruits, and it’s draining her. It seems like she’s at a crossroads when a grievance is filed as a six degrees of separation request comes across her desk that leaves her baff

Blame It On Paris is the seventh book in the Bennett Sisters Mysteries and it is just as phenomenal as the previous six. Taking you on a wild ride from Connecticut and all through the different towns in France, it leaves you enchanted.

This time the focus is on sister number four, Francine (Francie). She has just been promoted to a new position as an Assistant Managing Partner. Unfortunately, the role is not what she expected and she spends more time babysitting then mentoring new recruits. When

Blame it on Paris is the seventh installment from Lise McClendon's series, Bennett Sisters Mysteries. And a great installment it is! I have read and enjoyed a few others in the series and this one does not disappoint. I loved getting to know sister Francie better in this one. I love how the author describes the setting. It made me feel as though I have traveled to the streets in France.
I enjoyed Francie's story in Blame it on Paris. I found it to be delightful, intriguing, and fun. The mystery

“Blame it on Paris” earns 5/5 Croissants, Espresso…Engaging Fun!

The word “Paris” got me joining in, but it is Lise McClendon’s well-written story, well-developed characters, and engaging banter that kept me turning the pages. Francine Bennett, one of five Bennett sisters and a twenty-year veteran lawyer with Ward and Bailey, Esq., has been dealing with frustrating office politics, sudden illness of a named partner, and a disturbing “he said/she said” accusation that has facilitated a leave of ab

Looks like I've gone on a spree,devouring books set in France. At the very mention of the word "Paris" I picked up the book without even reading the summary. Thankfully, that's a decision I didn't come to regret.

Francine Bennett, the fourth of the five super talent Bennette sister goes through an insanely rough patch in the office thanks to office politics and a very harmful accusation by a colleague. She is petrified by the prospect of taking mandatory leave until the issue is sorted out, all

The newest Bennett Sisters book is another very enjoyable book in this series. I was hooked on the Bennett sisters from the first few pages of "Blackbird Fly" and my enthusiasm has not waned.
In this book we learn more about Francie, the 4th of the 5 lawyer-sisters. Francie is a woman with problems that are real-world: issues at work, an ex-husband (now dead) who still manages to interfere in her life, and a good heart that leads her to try to help an American student in Paris, even though her c

Another great Bennett Sisters adventure by Lise McClendon! Loved the story, the setting and the characters! The plot was amazing...mystery, intrigue and surprise twists. Definitely kept my attention! Ms. McClendon has such a gift for writing. I could easily picture the street scenes, the cafes and the prison she describes in the book. Loved getting to know Francie a bit better in this book. Can't wait for the next adventure!

As always I just loved this new book! It takes you to beautiful Paris with Merle and Pascal but we discover Francie even more as she is the principal in this book. Mysteries are still involved as always. I am already impatient for the next of the series! Hopefully another of the Benett sister to discover?!

Each Bennett sisters’ book, I have a new favorite sister! Loved Francie’s story and the multiple plot threads in Blame It On Paris!

Also, love the look at the non-tourist side of Paris.
